A Muslim man accused of killing a cow was beaten to death by a mob in central India, police said Sunday.
Siraj Khan, a 45-year-old tailor, was attacked in the Satna district of Madhya Pradesh state, and died at the scene.
Kahn’s friend Shakeel Maqbool, who was also attacked, was admitted to hospital with critical injuries.
The pair were reportedly surrounded by an angry mob early Friday morning, beaten with sticks and left to die in the street.
As details of the violent assault emerged at the weekend, 400 additional police were deployed to the district late Saturday as inquiries widened, the Press Trust of India reported. DailyMail UK.
